OneView formerly was known as IES Enterprise Forwarder Solution, acquired by Descartes when it bought Integrated Export Systems and IES Asia Limited in June of 2012.

In the process, Descartes said, users can standardize and automate air-cargo and freight-management operations, meet global trade requirements, provide real-time shipment-status monitoring, transmit accurate tracking updates to customers, minimize carrier charges for security and documentation services, and participate in such air-cargo industry initiatives as eFreight and Cargo2000.
